Belthronding was the bow of Beleg.


Belthronding was a bow of black yew-wood. Beleg might have gotten the name "Strongbow" from Belthronding. It was buried with him by Túrin and Gwindor after the accidental slaying of Beleg at the hands of Túrin, his friend.[2]


In Sindarin, Belthronding is comprised of the words bel ("strong"), staran or thron ("stiff, hard"), and ding ("an onomatopoeic variant of ting").[3]

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In earlier writings, the great bow of Beleg was called "Balthronding".[4]
